Suspicious death

The Flagstaff Police department is investigating a suspicious death that occurred Friday morning.

Jaron R. James, 23, of Flagstaff was found dead in a room at the L Motel located on 121 S. Milton Road at 9:20 a.m.

Police noted James had several injuries and have conducted several interviews.

James has been turned over to the Coconino County Medical Examiner’s Office and the investigation is open pending cause of death.



An intoxicated person entered a man’s house on the 1500 block of West University Heights Drive on Wednesday and passed out on his bed. The resident did not know the man and called police after the man vomited on his sheets.

When police arrived the resident said he did not wish to press charges and only wanted him out of the house.

Police contacted the intoxicated man’s girlfriend who took him home.

Weapons Discharge

A fast food employee called police after she saw six bullet holes through the window of Jack in the Box on East Route 66 on Tuesday. Police suspected that the bullets were related to an earlier unrelated incident.

The bullets found at the restaurant were .45 caliber casings. Police have forwarded the case to detectives.
